Investigations Continue in Jonah Shacknai Mansion Deaths

by at . Comments

Concurrent investigations into the mysterious deaths of millionaire Jonah Shacknai's son and girlfriend are in the process of winding down, but still open.

Shacknai's son, Max, and girlfriend, Rebecca Nalepa (also known as Rebecca Zahau), both died within a matter of days at his mansion in Coronado, Calif.

Jonah's 6-year-old son, Max, was found at the base of the stairs, unconscious. Two days later, Rebecca was found hanging outside the same home, naked.

Law enforcement sources report that despite the fact that Shacknai is not a suspect right now, "It doesn't look like Rebecca's death was by suicide."

The source, who is not named, added, "The evidence we have gathered so far, points us in the direction of this being a very, very suspicious death."

Max died in a San Diego area hospital several days after Rebecca's death. Sources told Radar that Max's death is deemed to be "a tragic accident."

Sherlock says "If Shacknai's face is how you look after using his products, it should be banned."

I thought his choice of words in his recent statement was peculiar and revealed his subconscious: "We have UNDERTAKEN SOME TRAGEDIES...." Never heard that turn of phrase anywhere, ever. So he was the 'undertaker'.

With regard to Tackyzacky's comments, I agree with the 1st 3 theories you indicated but I think the police force are fully aware of the consequences if indeed money was involved. Rebecca's death was tragic but clearly and undeniably a homicide! There will be an outcry nationwide if justice is not served.

Rebecca was killed by someone in the family or former family. She was wrongly blamed for Max's death which was an accident. Adam, Jonah and Dina - Are you all afraid now? You should be!

IMO, Rebecca was executed for inadvertently failing an assigned supreme mission: be the permanent caretaker of three beloved children, especially the youngest and the most vulnerable one. IMO in the master executioner's mind, only Rebecca's death could assuage the deep pain and devastation the child's premature freak death had caused. IMO, from its brutal and cold nature, the killing was carried out by a hitman - one who is extremely difficult to trace and who is an expert in staging a "suicide". IMO, the mastermind will escape justice - because money talks.

I think it goes without saying that a person found nude, with both hands and feet bound (some reports say her hands were bound behind her back but I don't know if that is true) hanging off a balcony is very,very suspicious. People do kill themselves by hanging but they don't usually strip first then tie their hands and feet up and somehow bounce over the fence of a balcony. It took them a couple weeks to decide that? Really? The death of a 6 year old is always sad and tragic. In a perfect and fair world no child should ever pass at such a young age and my heart goes out to the parents. I am so very sorry for your loss. I know there are no words for how they must feel.
